New Security Feature on GMAIL

PDF Print E-mail

If you are a gmail user you will be happy of the new security features that Google has incorporated to Gmail account. Through their gmail blog, they announced that you can checked the activity details of your account, detailing the last time you accessed your account and the IP address from which your account has been accessed.

Here is the original post from Google:

You may remember that a while back we launched remote sign out and information about recent account activity to help you understand and manage your account usage. This information is still at the bottom of your inbox. Now, if it looks like something unusual is going on with your account, we’ll also alert you by posting a warning message saying, “Warning: We believe your account was last accessed from…” along with the geographic region that we can best associate with the access.

Gmail Security

To determine when to display this message, our automated system matches the relevant IP address, logged per the Gmail privacy policy, to a broad geographical location. While we don’t have the capability to determine the specific location from which an account is accessed, a login appearing to come from one country and occurring a few hours after a login from another country may trigger an alert.

By clicking on the “Details” link next to the message, you’ll see the last account activity window that you’re used to, along with the most recent access points.

Gmail Security

If you think your account has been compromised, you can change your password from the same window. Or, if you know it was legitimate access (e.g. you were traveling, your husband/wife who accesses the account was also traveling, etc.), you can click “Dismiss” to remove the message.

The new features of Gmail will help user in preventing their account being hack or being access by someone without the user knowing it.
